Bullett Raja, released on November 29, 2013 has got cold shoulder at the Box Office. Tigmanshu Dhulia attempted hard to actually fit a commercial actor in his film for the first time, but looks like he has failed at this attempt. The opening week collection of Bullett Raja has been way below expectations.
Friday, November 29, 2013 the film collected Rs 70 million (7 crore) nett, followed by Saturday, November 30, 2013 where the film collected Rs 60 million (6 crore) nett. On Sunday, December 1, 2013 the business was Rs 80 million (8 crore) nett making it a total of Rs 210 million (21 crore) nett.
In spite of a strong opening in UP and Rajasthan in single screens, the film fell flat at most of the multiplexes.
Bullett Raja, starring Saif Ali Khan and Sonakshi Sinha, who were paired for the first time was in the news all through its making. There were reports that both Saif and director Tigmanshu had a few differences during the making of the film. Though both denied such allegations, but then one look at the film and one can see that.
Saif fails to impress you with his performance and Sonakashi has very little to do in the film. Based in a small town in Uttar Pradesh, Bullett Raja has been described as a festival of guns, crime, and glory. It has just a week to utilize its potential because this week Prabhu Deva’s R… Rajkumar is set for release.
Shahid Kapoor starrer R… Rajkumar is on the similar lines of Bullett Raja. It is also a crime thriller and has Sonakshi Sinha. Even though R… Rajkumar is carrying a positive buzz our prediction for R…Rajkumar is similar to that of Bullett Raja.
Lesson Learnt: Do not try and fit an actor in a film, let the film fit an actor.
